Early Childhood Intervention Group Programs

Early childhood intervention (ECI) group programs support children up to school entry age to develop the skills necessary for successful participation in-home and community life and transition into the next stage of their education. Children attend these programs for two or three days a week during school terms for at least 12 months. 

Autism Queensland's ECI group programs:

  • Recognise the specific needs of young children with autism
  • Recognise that parents are crucial members of the team who will help your child achieve success
  • Use the child’s individual strengths and interests to motivate learning and develop skills
  • Teach skills that are meaningful and useful for each child
  • Utilise a positive approach to behaviour support which focuses on understanding the reasons for undesirable behaviour.
